Food and Drink

The Feldman’s guys are serious about woodfired pizzas. Yours might come topped with salty bresaola, bocconcini and rocket, or perhaps four cheeses (brie, parmesan, bocconcini and gorgonzola) oozing across the plate and scattered with toasted walnuts. Then there’s the lovingly nicknamed ‘seafood festival’, a cacophony of crab, calamari & prawns. For the more adventurous, a duck schnitzel is a surprisingly well designed novelty menu item.
They’re serious about locally sourced brews too, with a drinks list including a dangerously drinkable 2Brothers ‘Kung Foo’ rice lager and a Stone & Wood Pacific Ale from Byron Bay, NSW (and no preservatives apparently means friendlier hangovers) sitting alongside a curiously Corey Feldman themed cocktail list.
Amongst all the aforementioned seriousness, the owners of Feldman’s are really a very jovial and good-humored bunch. It’s actually hard to gauge the sincerity of owner Jason Pitt (of Gertrude’s Brown Couch fame) as he spruiks his new mission to bring the cocktail list to life, with a visit from none other than Mr Corey Feldman himself.
If you need to up the fun ante, the less responsible patron could always smash an after dinner pickleback, which translates loosely to a shot of whiskey followed up with chaser of straight pickle juice – seriously. Those more mature diners might choose to bring the ‘squids’, and if they’re under 12 and order before 6pm eat free. And what could be more fun than free food?
